Last night Alex and I took the fiesta and we went to see a drive-in movie.
I hadn't seen a drive-in movie in years, so it was really fun. We drove up to the theatre "The Valley 6" and literally felt like we'd gone back in time to the 50's or something. Everything is really old fashioned looking and so different from the regular movie-going experience. We got there way too early (drive-in movie noobs) and my fiesta was the only one in the lot for awhile while the sun was still up.
You had to pull up to one of those weird post things and attach the cable to your antenna so that you could get a good signal on AM station 650... apparently this is a really old school way to run a drive-in theatre, but I like having the whole experience. It was cool.
There was a concession stand with overpriced snacks and old arcade games, and 6 different theatres showing movies! Alex and I saw Star Trek, which was surprisingly really good, albeit a little confusing.
After the movie I was trying to find the exit and was driving all around when this guy stopped us and was like "bathroom or exit?" Sheepishly I said exit and he pointed directly behind me. I then had what was one of the most terrifying experiences of my manual-car-driving life. To get out of the theatre area, you had to drive over one of those things with the spikes where it's fine if you go the correct way, but if you try to go the wrong way over it, it will puncture your tires.
This was all well and good except for the fact that just a few feet past it I had to stop before turning out on the main road, and all of this happened on a rather steep hill. So where I already freak out having to start on a hill for fear of rolling backwards, HERE I was freaking out about having to start on a hill for fear of rolling backwards onto SHARP POINTY SPIKES THAT WOULD POP MY TIRES.
....I made it, eventually. xD
But yeesh. Talk about learning by pressure.
Another picture of my car looking completely futuristic and out of place in the most old-fashioned looking establishment I've ever been.
